Four Power Lunches to Try Right Now

Just not all in the same day.

Michael Mina’s expense-account magnet now has “three for $35,” a quick-and dirty lunch option serving up soup, an entrée, and a sweet treat in under an hour. 252 California St. (near Front St.), 415-397-9222

Getting in and out of Hakkasan for $29 is unheard of, but it’s the going rate for the Cantonese spot’s three-course lunch. Get your pick of dim sum and a main course with macarons for dessert. 1 Kearny St. (at Market St.), 415-829-8148

Twenty Five Lusk has a plethora of new roll-up-your-sleeves, casual lunch dishes, like a fried quail and burrata sandwich ($19). 25 Lusk St. (near Townsend St.), 415-495-5875

Sit down for Prospect’s extensive lunch menu, or jet by for takeout: prewrapped sandwiches, like prosciutto-fig, are yours with chips and a soda for just $12. 300 Spear st. (near Folsom st.), 415-247-7770
